Get Experienced Assistance For Seniors And Their Families



The Eric Manherz Team is experienced assisting seniorsThe Eric Manherz team has worked with many young and not-so-young seniors and their families.  It’s always our pleasure to help them to achieve their real estate goals.  You may be considering a move due to retirement, a change in health or simply the space doesn’t fit right any longer.

Downsizing from your castle to something comfortableFor some, the goal is to downsize – or, more accurately, right-size – to reduce time spent on maintenance and cleaning.

For others, it’s to take advantage of the equity in their home and free up cash to enjoy travel or other hobbies. Some prefer the stability and security of homeownership and move into smaller homes such as condo apartments. Some move into rental apartments. And some move into retirement residences.

Whatever your reason, most people discover that it is better to begin sooner than later. As we age, changes to our strength and range-of-motion may make moving more difficult. And if left too long, decisions on the sale and what items to move into a much smaller residence may fall to children or another caregiver.

THE ERIC MANHERZ TEAM has the experience to understand the concerns that are particular to seniors and their families.

Helping you to decide what's best for youMany seniors are simply somewhat older sellers and buyers with experience buying and selling homes in the past. They look for the assistance of a professional who recognizes this background and who also knows the current real estate market, all of the paperwork involved, and has the skills to get the best result with marketing and negotiations.

In some cases, things have become difficult, and a smaller home or even a retirement home may be the right solution.

Regardless of the motivation, moving from your long-held home can be stressful at the best of times. While many seniors hope to never move from their current home, changes in lifestyle and their personal situation may occur quickly and dramatically. For seniors who have not bought or sold a property in many years, the sale of their home may seem overwhelming and complicated.

We enlist the work of recognized professional stagers and photographers to ensure that your property is presented in the best possible light.  We can also suggest and provide the contact information of other experts for help with downsizing, prepping the property for sale, moving and storage, estate sales, lawyers, and even advice on finding the best retirement residence.

Our commitment is to get the most value for your home in the shortest time with the least trouble so that it enhances your real estate experience.
